    Zero Carbonation

    I brewed a DIPA using extract and bottled the brew as I normally would. Used my priming sugar in the bottling bucket, etc. After 2 weeks of conditioning there was no carbonation at all. I test one bottle at a time. So after another week, I put a bottle in the fridge, waited a few days, maybe a...

    Best DIPA Recipe, and favorite hop additions

    Just looking for a really good hazy Ipa recipe, I’m not quite as experience with malts yet to put together a good grain bill. I’m looking for something resembling “Dead Wax” by foam brewers in VT. Overall though I’m just looking for a really good super hazy IPA though, so anything helps.

    DIPA w/ Spirulina???

    My girl is a big fan of IPA’s and high ABV beers, but I’ve kind of been sowing my wild oats so to speak with lagers and other beer types. She’s been waiting for a beer to call her own though, so I want to make her a double IPA with some bite. I’ve also been reading about spirulina algae and...

    Not Your Fathers IPA: Brewing IPAs Reminiscent of Todays Greats

    I, like others, have noticed a commonality among today's new and popular IPAs. It seems that the whole IBU Arms Race of the West Coast is finally subsiding and giving way to a new type of IPA. These IPAs all seem to share several characteristics: They have an intense, and almost juicy, hop aroma...

    In Need of Advise (Expedited Time Tables)

    I know, I know - you can't rush good beer. Unless you over commit for a Halloween party.... I brewed a DIPA using K-97 last night for it to be ready to serve in 10 days. Yikes right? Usually for these NEIPA / DIPAs I don't sweat that time frame in a pinch (obviously more time is better). I can...

    Adding Body But Not Color

    I am tweaking a DIPA (NEIPA style) recipe and really looking to stay as close to straw yellow as possible but can't seem to do so with my steeping grains. Currently my bill is: 6 lb Pilsner DME 1 lb Bavarian Wheat DME 1.5 lb Flaked Oats 0.5 lb Carapils 0.2 lb Crystal 20 I am getting 5 SRM on...

    Acceptable Amount of Alcohol Taste

    Recently did a DIPA which is young, only about 2 weeks old that came out to 8.5%. For my NEIPA style beers I usually keg pretty early about 10 days (gravity reading stable for 3 days in a row) then dry hop in the keg for a 1 1/2 weeks before serving and they usually are gone within 1-2 weeks...

    Double IPA overly sweet?

    First time brewing a DIPA...OG was 1089, FG 1019...recipe predicted 1015 and when I took my first hydrometer reading before cold crashing it looked to be 1015 (I must have misread it or wrote it down wrong). And yes before you ask I adjusted the hydrometer readings for temp. I just racked it to...

    Timing Dry Hops in Double IPA

    This is my first time making a DIPA and I actually slightly overshot my OG so it's gonna be a whopper (9.75% predicted ABV). It's been in the fermenter since Monday and once it got going it really took off. I'm still getting a bubble in the airlock every 5secs so the yeast is chugging away at...

    Am i maximizing the potential of these hops?

    I brewed a NE (or double) IPA that came out really good. This one was done with partial mash and extract and was the 4th beer i brewed. This was also the first beer i brewed with my own hop bill. I'd like to try this one again with my own all grain bill and using the lessons i learnt but because...

    Critique my partigyle idea....please.

    So I'm sitting here thinking. I know I can brew up a batch of something today by spending about $20 on grain. But...if I spend $30 I can do two batches, if I partigyle. I've never done one at home before, but I think I have a good recipe below to do a DIPA and a cream ale as the partigyle...

    Infusing MJ with a great IPA or DIPA

    Hey, not sure if this convo is frowned upon but I have a question for any brewer out there who has at least some experience with infusing MJ with their fav IPA. I know that it's legal in some states and it will be legal country wide here in Canada this year (if our Gov't doesn't **** the bed)...

    DIPA recipe suggestions

    Hi all, I bought a lot of hops and want to use them on a killer DIPA. Something with a decent malt backbone. I only bottle if that has any impact on the recipe decision. It can be a clone brew or a tried and tested home brew recipe. I have most malts or a substitute for them - except special...
